We offer a number of different First Aid services:
First Aid is required in every form of business and industry. Health and Safety in the workplace is key to every warehouse, factory, yard or office, to support employees and customers alike.
The Health and Safety regulations are governed by an independent watchdog, of which we work very closely with to provide all forms of workplaces with the correct standards of First Aid and Health and Safety supplies and equipment.
There are many different types of industry which may need more specific requirements, for example construction, education, woodwork, catering and health care, but as standard workplaces are classed as high or low risk, depending on the type of industry. Once classified, the amount of employees is taken into consideration to determine what requirements need to be put in place. Workplaces that pose more of a significant health and safety risk are more likely to also need a trained first aider.
We do not train first aid, but do have contacts we can offer to discuss training options with you.
We do stress we are not Nurses or Doctors, but all our office staff are trained in First Aid, and have 25+ years of combined knowledge in the First Aid and Medical Industry. We cannot offer medical treatment, but can certainly offer support and guidance, and extensive knowledge of what equipment and supplies individuals might need.
As standard for a low risk workplace, offices will need at least 1 complete First Aid Kit stocked to Health & Safety Standards, and a person in charge of First Aid, including making sure the kit remains stocked up. Employers must provide all First Aid and Safety arrangements to all employees.
